Today, Wednesday, May 16 is Hudson Valley Gives.  Today, you can go to HVgives.org and donate to your favorite non-profit organization.  The day was set to wrap up with a special party at the Newburgh Brewing Company.  It was party to celebrate the success of Hudson Valley Gives.

Due to the storms to hit the area on Tuesday night, they are cancelling the Success Party at the Newburgh Brewing Company.  Currently the brewery has no power, people are busy cleaning up or dealing with outages.  Plus, most of the organizations that are being celebrated are in emergency response mode because of the storm.

There is good news, so far $65,000 dollars have been raised via HVGives.org.  According to the press release from the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan, this number is outstanding considering the widespread power outages.

Consumers have until midnight to make a donation at HVGives.org.
